Four bodies found after plane crash

Four bodies have been pulled from the site where a small plane crashed into two Connecticut homes.

Anthony Moscato of the East Haven Fire Department said that the bodies of two people from the plane and two people in one of the homes were recovered overnight. The deputy chief said authorities now believe those were the only victims.

A family member identified two of the dead as former Microsoft executive Bill Henningsgaard and his teenage son, Maxwell, who were in the plane.

Authorities previously said that two children in a home were missing. They were aged one and 13.

The multi-engine, propeller-driven plane struck two small homes a few blocks from Tweed New Haven Airport as it came in to land on Friday.
